WELLINGTON — Texas A&M Forest Service Fire Coordinator Ashley Johnson of Amarillo spoke at the Sept. 7 meeting of the Wellington Lions Club.
In existence since since 1915, Johnson used the recent Hurricane Laura as an example where the Forest Service assists with fires, saw work, poles and tree issues.
Among other services are prescribed burning to get rid of fuel in places such as Sunday Canyon near Amarillo with only one way in and out of the housing development.
The Amarillo branch of the Panhandle organization has an office in Childress and Lubbock.
Boss Lion Rex Henard introduced Sweetheart Dani Ponder. The Lions elected her at the July 6 meeting from her pre-recorded speech as she spent the summer in Fort Leonard Wood, Mo., at Texas Army National Guard Basic Combat Training.
Lion Jeff Thomas led the U.S. pledge and Lion Linda Powell led the Texas pledge. Lion Bev Odom offered the invocation. Geney Gulley served the evening meal.
Lion Nancy Harris read the minutes of the Aug. 17 meeting and Lion Neal Odom gave the treasurer report.
Other Lions in attendance were Nita Day, Fraya Hammons, Shirley Henard, Jeff Pastor, Paul and Harriett Schaub, Karon and Rudie Tate, Janie Thomas and Margret Wood.
